global drivers of e science
Global Drivers of e-Science
  • Collaboration
  • Data Deluge
  • Digital Technology
    • Ubiquity
    • Cost reduction
    • Performance increase
  • Consequential Investment
    • UK e-Science £240 million + 80 companies
    • EU e-Infrastructure

global knowledge communities often driven by data e g astronomy
Global Knowledge CommunitiesOften Driven by Data: E.g., Astronomy
  • No. & sizes of data sets as of mid-2002, grouped by wavelength
  • 12 waveband coverage of large areas of the sky
  • Total about 200 TB data
  • Doubling every 12 months
  • Largest catalogues near 1B objects

Foundation for e-Science
  • e-Science methodologies will rapidly transformscience, engineering, medicine and business
    • driven by exponential growth (×1000/decade)
      • enabling a whole-system approach

nesc mission
NeSC Mission
  • To stimulate and sustain the development of e-Science in the UK, to contribute significantly to its international development and to ensure that its techniques are rapidly propagated to commerce and industry.
  • To identify and support e-Science projects within and between institutions in Scotland, and to provide the appropriate technical infrastructure and support in order to ensure rapid uptake of e-Science techniques by Scottish scientists.
  • To encourage the interaction and bi-directional flow of ideas between computing science research and e-Science applications
  • To develop advances in scientific data curation and analysis and to be a primary source of top quality systems and repositories that enable management, sharing and best use.

Goal
  • To have influence
    • What are researchers doing because of us?
    • What are developers doing because of us?
    • What is industry doing because of us?
    • What are educators doing because of us?
    • What are governments doing because of us?
thank you
Thank You

To the University of Glasgow for its substantial investment in and commitment to e-Science
